Dallas Avandia Lawsuits Continue Be Filed Against GlaxoSmithKline for Heart Attacks, Strokes and Other Cardiovascular Problems Caused by Avandia

Avandia Health Problems

Avandia is an anti-diabetic drug marketed by the pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline that hasbeen linked to nearly 100,000 heart attacks and tens of thousands of strokes. There have been over 13,000 Avandia lawsuits filed so far, even though there were over 10 times as many heart attacks and strokes caused by the diabetes drug and likely an equal number of lesser cardiovascular disease problems caused by Avandia.

There have been many questions, posed by the FDA, the United States Senate and in the majority of all Avandia lawsuit cases that the drug's maker was aware of the significant dangers continued usage posed long before it alerted the public and even the FDA. Although Avandia has been largely removed from the market after additional FDA Avandia warnings and restrictions were imposed in the summer of 2010, many have argued that these restrictions, if not an outright Avandia recall, should have occurred long before that, which would have dramatically reduced the number of heart attacks, strokes and other cardiovascular problems caused by Avandia.

It is estimated that 10,000 Avandia lawsuits have now been settled, although more are being filed each and every week.
